Highway Patrol's sleep schedule on TV

The local NBC affiliate in Bismarck, North Dakota, USA ran a piece of the effect of shiftwork, in this case a rotating shiftwork schedule, on police officers sleep schedule. You can view the piece, with a brief write up as well, at the KFYR website.

It is important for the general public and policy makers to recognize the issue of sleep and alertness for police and other public safety officals. The public relies on the availability of these services but may not always appreciate the challenges of protecting public safety 24/7. Way to go KFYR.
